American Friends Service Committee’s Roots for Peace and All Peoples Community Center celebrated the first year build out of the Community Farm! Community members came together on Saturday, May 18, 2019 for a ribbon cutting at the Community Farm.

The day was filled with excitement as Le Ballet Dembaya African Drum & Dance Ensemble performed for attendees. Roots for Peace showcased Youth Artivism and the work of their Food Growers Network members. Community members had the opportunity to share stories of the farm and also tour the mural painted by All Peoples team member and artist Erick Moreno with All Peoples youth. A mural was also done by the Roots for Peace – youth.

American Friends Service Committee’s Roots for Peace and All Peoples Community Center would like to acknowledge and thank Meta Housing Corporation for their partnership in the successful conversion of the vacant lot into an urban agricultural space. We would also like to thank Councilmember Curren D. Price Jr., Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and Assemblymember Reginald Jones-Sawyer for their presence at the Ribbon cutting.

Sabrina Pridgett has overcome incredible odds to successfully graduate high school and attend college this Fall.

Meet Sabrina. Sabrina Pridgett is a 20 year old YouthSource Participant who is the definition of resiliency. She comes from a four member household learning to deal with income instability, lack of academic guidance, and family loss which she has used to build strength to push herself daily. Sabrina Pridgett finished a milestone in her academic goals by completing high school in December 2018 and receiving her diploma from CRCD Academy at All Peoples where she was taking Independent Studies. She sees graduating from CRCD as the first step in the right direction and positioning herself for “the overcoming of future obstacles”.

Sabrina is approaching her one year anniversary as a YouthSource Participant. During her intake process, Sabrina met with YouthSource Assistant Ms. Michelle Watson who instantly recognized her potential for academic success. She is a natural leader and mentor for the rest of her peer group at YouthSource. Through YouthSource, Sabrina has participated in civic engagement such as homeless outreach, community events, and youth lead.

Sabrina worked her youth internship hours as an Clerical Assistant at All Peoples where she has been a tremendous help with data input and organizing files among other responsibilities. Her next goal is pursuing her undergraduate studies at Santa Monica College. Sabrina fell in love with photography from the first moment she remembers picking up a camera and wants to pursue it professionally. Another passion Sabrina has is cosmetology. She would like to blend both interests into a personal business.

In February 2019, Sabrina completed a Santa Monica College tour with YouthSource Case Manager Adrian Rios, and visited the Cosmetology and Photography department buildings to get familiarized with the campus. They returned in May to meet with academic counselors to put together an action plan for college starting with signing up for Fall classes. Sabrina looks forward to joining the Black Collegians at SMC and remaining active in the pursuit of her personal and community’s success.

This is just the beginning for Sabrina. In five years, she would like to be living independently in her own apartment and continuing her education. Sabrina hopes to one day own her own Photography Studio. For Sabrina, there is no obstacle she can’t overcome with self-determination and seeking out the right resources. She believes that community is the essence of unity and that coming together is what will help the world become a better place. A community motto she strongly believes in is “You have to understand something to make an effective change”.

Kevin Aguilar will be the first in his family to graduate high school and go to college.

Meet Kevin. Kevin Aguilar is a seventeen year old high school student at NAVA Preparatory College Academy. He currently has a GPA of 3.3, and his favorite subject is Pre-Calculus. His hobbies include composing and writing music and photography.

Kevin grew up in a large family with strong values of work ethic, respect, hard work, determination, and a sense of self (knowing who you are). He believes that education helps broaden people’s perspectives and experience. Kevin also gives thanks to mentors like his cousin Brian that take time to guide and assist youth because in Kevin’s words, “it’s not easy living in rough neighborhoods”.

Kevin first joined All Peoples in November 2018 when he participated in our Toyota Scholarship Workshop provided through FamilySource College Corner. From there, Kevin enrolled into the YouthSource Center to get post-secondary transitional and employment support services. He is currently in the process of completing his work internship with YouthSource as an Academic Tutor at the All Peoples after-school program. Kevin stands out as a “natural leader” in the after-school program. He has strong mentor skills and sees all the youth as younger siblings.

Kevin has also contributed immensely to our South Los Angeles Vernon-Central community. He volunteers his time during All Peoples’ community events such as our Annual Christmas Event. Kevin has also joined All Peoples’ collaborative partner Los Angeles Community Action Team – LACAT and actively assists in community clean ups as well as homeless outreach.

Kevin’s goals are to attend Santa Monica College and then transfer to UCLA. He would like to major in Marketing/Advertisement or Computer Science with a minor in Music. YouthSource Case Manager Adrian Rios has started working with Kevin in the college enrollment process.

Facing family challenges and overcoming hard obstacles in life has made Kevin a resilient youth. Kevin enjoys time spent at All Peoples because he “loves the family environment”. He hopes to continue to be an example to and mentor his younger siblings by encouraging them to strive to go to college. Because of Kevin’s resiliency and with the support of his YS Case Manager Adrian Rios, Kevin will be the first to graduate and go to college in his family.

Susana Gonzalez received assistance through the Vernon-Central / LATTC WorkSource Center and now gets to pay it forward.

Meet Susana. Susana Gonzalez came across the services provided at the Vernon-Central / LATTC WorkSource Center mid- January 2019. Susana is a bilingual Adult participant who was seeking employment related to her Bachelor’s degree completed in Social Welfare and Disabilities Studies in December 2018. Susana enrolled in the WorkSource Center and was assigned to All Peoples Career Coach Mario Calderon. After enrollment, Intake Specialist Lourdes Gomez reviewed Susana’s expansive involvement with her community and assisted her with a lead to a job fair recruiting case managers. Immediately after orientation, Susana attended the recruitment event.

Shortly thereafter, Susana was offered a Client Services Coordinator position at The Chrysalis Center. She then agreed to the full time employment offer and is now assisting others in the same position she was in when she first began seeking employment by developing their interviewing skills and resumes to attain employment. Susana is a great example of using the resources available in her community to network and gain skills necessary to attain employment. As many students coming out of college may understand, finding work immediately after graduation can be a challenging and daunting task. However, Susana quickly used her resources and established strong connections in order to better her chances of employment.

The WorkSource Center is proud to have assisted Susana in both her endeavors of helping others in her community as well as achieving financial stability in an industry that is both fulfilling and related to her field of interest. Susana is now actively working with Career Coach, Mario Calderon, in an effort to continue her involvement with her community by empowering the under-served youth of the Greater Los Angeles area to follow in her footsteps in using the resources available to them to better their future.

WorkSource Center Career Coach Mario Calderon

Mario currently holds weekly WorkSource Recruitment Readiness Workshops, Interview Technique Workshops and Job Fairs to give clients an opportunity meet employers with opportunities in various fields.

If you’re 18 or over, please contact Mario at (213) 763-5961 or mcalderon@allpeoplescc.org for more information regarding the services available.

Mrs. Huerta has received permanent residency, a driver’s license, and assistance for her autistic son.

Meet Mrs. Huerta. Mrs. Huerta is a 51 year old female who lives with her husband and her 13 year old child. In the summer of 2017, she came to All Peoples to inquire about services for herself and her son. She inquired about our computer classes and ESL program and immediately participated in both. Through the intake process, a FamilySource Center intake specialist found out that her 13 year old son was autistic and could benefit from case management services.

Through the case management assessment, FamilySource Case Manager Yessenia Villacorta discovered that Mrs. Huerta had already submitted an application to immigration services on her own and was awaiting a response. She was however, in need of assistance with Regional Center advocacy and legal and immigration services information. When setting up an action plan with her case manager, Mrs. Huerta asked for help with translation services for an upcoming IEP meeting at her son’s school as well as translation services at the immigration office. Mrs. Huerta also requested advocacy at the regional center and at her son’s school.

Mrs. Huerta’s case manager accompanied her to the IEP meeting at John Adams Middle School and to the immigration office where she received the good news that her application for permanent residency was approved. Mrs. Huerta did not have a Driver’s License before, but with the documentation of approval and an Alien Identification Number, she could apply for a DMV license. With the assistance of her case manager, Mrs. Huerta found a driving school and completed the driver’s license application. The case manager was also able to drive her to take the driving test. Mrs. Huerta passed the driving test, and is now a licensed driver. Last month, she received her permanent residency card from immigration services.

Mrs. Huerta is actively participating and receiving services at our center. She has participated in the ESL class, computer class, supplementary food program, and Christmas program. She also filed her taxes through our VITA program and participated in the Christmas program.

Because of Mrs. Huerta’s tenacity and with the advocacy provided by her FamilySource Case Manager, Mrs. Huerta is on the path of creating a better life for herself and her family.
